The company’s revenues are derived from the management of intellectual property rights and as such the focus is currently on enhancing its holdings. The company now boasts a catalogue of over 550 songs, surpassing the 120 songs proposed as the target in the first year of operations in its IPO prospectus. The songwriting camp is being staged to enhance this catalogue, taking the company even closer to its goal of realizing profits of over US$600,000 in 2013.
“Through our songwriting camps, regional songwriters will collaborate with renowned international songwriters to create songs with an international appeal,” explained Ivan Berry, Chief Executive Officer of C2W. “We find that our songwriters are equally as talented as international songwriters, they just haven’t been given the opportunity or platform to shine,” he added.
This song writing camp will see Jamaica’s Strongest One, singer-songwriter Etana joining, Candy Gloster, Mark Cyrus with newly signed Rupert Gayle and Shazelle. A complement of four studio producers, eight songwriters and two executives are will prepare material that appeal to International markets.
